trueclass non-dualled cleric, so no kits.
roll a high con and dex, better also a decent str, and a high wis to get more spells.
learn how to buff him, learn how to use his other spells, learn how to use potions and items to fight the most challenging battles.
a trueclass cleric is not the most powerful toon possible, but from a certain level on he can buff himself to be surprisingly effective mlee, with very good alpha damage and thac0, at least as good as the ones of fighters. and with a great hp buff also. even with a single pip in the style he can dual weld effectively when buffed, or can be very tanky with the right shield. his main problem is the apr, even if improved hasted and using 2 weapons he can not get more then 4 apr, 3 if hasted trough a potion.
ranged with the right buffs and the best sling and bullets he can do slightly less then 30 dmg/attack with very good thac0.
not buffed he is only a pale shadow of how glorious he is buffed.
he gives also a great utility to his party, chaotic commands is super useful, but he has other protection spells, decent summons and even some damaging spells, that at high levels become very strong.
if you want a charname that shines every time, that is always leading as number of kills pick some other class or go dual-multi.
but if you want a charname that is very versatile and useful to the party the cleric is a perfect choice.
and please use the healing spells, but don't abuse of them, given the high number of healing potions available and the existence of regeneration items and of a wand that completely heal at distance it is probably the least productive use of his spell slots.
i often read people calling the clerics healers, maybe implying that healing is their more important function.
the more i play them the more it seems the least important one.

I agree a cleric can effectively melee if you want them to. I usually use them to buff the real fighters though.
